The Black-Jewish Entertainment Alliance is being launched to bring the two communities together in solidarity, to support each other in their struggles, and to better understand each other’s plight and narratives.

The Black and Jewish communities in America have long stood together, from co-founding the NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), to partaking in great numbers in the Freedom Rides and Freedom Summer, to marching and standing with Dr. King.

In the face of a climate dealing with historic racism, rising antisemitism, and societal turmoil, it is critical that we continue to stand and support one another, and that starts with a showing of unity through the release of the statement below.

We hope that you will add your name as signatory in support along with many of your colleagues from the entertainment community.
